The 73rd Annual Junior Livestock Show
Sunday, July 11 – Tuesday, July 13, 2021
All shows streaming Live via Zoom
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — The Junior Livestock Show, a summer tradition in Central New York, will take place virtually this year. The event and grounds are not open to the public due to current COVID-19 Guidelines for large gatherings. All shows will be streamed live via Zoom for the public from Sunday, July 11 through Tuesday, July 13. Visit FarmersMuseum.org/JLS for live streaming information.
More than 160 youth handlers and 450 animals from a nine-county region will be included in this year’s modified shows. The event truly is a celebration of youth in agriculture as it tests the skills of youth handlers ages eight to eighteen who present animals (dairy cows, beef, swine, dairy goats, meat goats and sheep of various breeds) that they own, care for, and have prepared for competition.
This year, the show has been modified with no overnight stays for participants. The Museum is looking forward to next season for a bigger and better show, when everyone can again gather and share in the fun.
Since 1947, The Farmers’ Museum has collaborated with the Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program to produce the show. It is conducted in cooperation with Cornell Cooperative Extension County 4-H educators and clubs throughout central New York. On-site services provided by the Leatherstocking Corporation. The show is sponsored in part by Chobani.
